MOUNT VERNON - The Knox County Health Department will host the last bi-monthly farmer’s market of the season on Tuesday from 4-6:30 p.m.
Senior Executive Chef Paul Higgins will demonstrate different ways to prepare apples, including grilled apples and baked apples. Recipes will be provided and taste-testing is encouraged. Glen Hill Orchard is providing apples for the demonstration.
Additionally, students with the Mount Vernon High School FCCLA will provide activities for children involving apples. Activities will include apple tasting with different kinds of apples; a craft project; and an energy break involving apples and water. Everyone attending the food demonstration sessions will have the opportunity to register for a small chest freezer or charcoal grill. The winners will be announced later this month. The freezer and grill give-away is part of the Get Healthy Knox County campaign with funding provided by United Way in partnership with Herald’s Appliances.
Exhibitors at the health department market are the same growers that sell at the Saturday market on the Public Square in downtown Mount Vernon. The health department farmer’s market is open to the general public and is held rain or shine. In the case of inclement weather, the food demonstration will be moved inside.
